River Suir, Ireland

dandelion

I have moved. I still live near river Suir, but there are no herons, no meadows and no wildflowers here. City life…

Right before I left the town our Camera Club had an exciting outing: a boat trip from Carrick on Suir marina to Mooncoin and back, courtesy of Carrick on Suir River Rescue.  

This noble organization has never received any funds from the Government and has been assisting in rescue and search operations all over Ireland since 1960s. At the moment they have sixteen volunteers who are on 24/7 call. If someone can make a donation, please read this page. They also have a charity shop in Carrick on Suir where you can donate unwanted goods.

Here are a few images from that boat trip.

Last week I was nominated for two rewards. Wow.  Many thanks go to the inspiring bloggers who are just too kind and supportive.

First one was a One Lovely blog nomination. I was nominated by a wonderful lady who inspires her readers to change their life.

Photography tip of the day: Look in your viewfinder and make a composition before you press the shutter button.  I know that it is a digital camera, but still you will spend less time deleting bad quality images.

  1. I am just writing a post about the mythology behind the 5 longest rivers in Ireland, the Suir being one of them, so I am delighted to see your images, tbey really help me get a feel for the place.

    Also, looking at your home page, is that a fox you have for a pet?

      1. Love these articles! Your photography is stunning and you have a very keen eye. I have always loved foxes since I read a story about the wild foxes on Hampstead Heath in London as a child. I remember listening to their calls when I had my first child and had to wake in the middle of the night to feed him. Moving into the heart of rural Ireland I hoped to see them in my garden, but although we get lots of rabbits and hares, we’ve never had a fox. Maybe they stay away because of the dog. Ican see why walking along R Suir destresses you… its beautiful!

        1. I am sure the foxes stay away from your dog. And also, you probably have no chicken the fox would love to visit:) If you are in Co Kilkenny some day I can give you a telephone number to contact Pat. He likes people coming over. 🙂

  2. Thanks for nominating my blog! I need some time because I haven’t been too active, I also have to think of my 15 nominations (sometimes they reject or are award free), so this takes some time. Thanks for the nomination!😃

    1. Haha, not everyone loves photographers and dentists 🙂

      There are Camera clubs almost everywhere in Ireland. I am sure there is a group of photographers meeting together in your city. A website Panoramio which now provides all the images for Google Earth was initially owned by Spanish guys.

  8. Thank you very much for the nomination!

    For the boat trip, it looks awesome. I have not been to one but from the pictures you took it must be a fantastic ride. It looks a bit scary seeing the fast boat like that and you have to wear the floating vest. The babies are adorable 🙂
